The Latest With Watt

There has been a lot of rumors and confusion surrounding Chris Watt's recruitment the past couple days.

All of that should now be put to rest.

Chris Watt, a five-star offensive guard and Notre Dame verbal commit, will be signing his letter-of-intent on Wednesday, to play football for Charlie Weis and the Fighting Irish.

"I've just been advised not to talk about anything, but let everyone know that everything is fine, and I will be signing on Wednesday," Watt wrote in a text message to Irish Eyes.

Watt verbally committed to Notre Dame back in July, and is the top-ranked recruit in the Irish's 2009 class.

There was talk that Watt was possibly interested in Iowa down the stretch, but the Glen Ellyn, Ill., product took a trip to South Bend on Sunday to spend time with Notre Dame's new offensive line coach Frank Verducci. Watt's trip went so well, he ended up staying the night.
